    here is a link to the page where I outlined everything, I need all help I can get - thank you everybody in advance.....<a target="_blank" href=http://clubs.hemmings.com/fieroswest/weld_wheels.htm>Weld Wheels</a>

    I have contacted Weld personnally and was regretably told that the wheels stopped production in 1997, and there are no longer any parts to repair, nor replace these wheels

    Those look like the older SR-series wheel. I looked in my Weld catalog and they only show the SR-series in 13",15", 16.1", and 17". They do not show a 16" or 16.5" in that series.

    BTW, who did you talk to at Weld? I have chatted with David Sampson and he is awesome to talk to. Very willing and able to help with most problems.

    If all else fails, is there a way you can make a "wanted" ad on eBay somehow?

    I spoke with Tom Cahill at Weld for sources on the wheels. They would be the 16.1's as they do roughly measure 16 3/8". This is awesome that I have you guys out there for help. Not sure how I could put a wanted add out there on Ebay - but thats not a bad idea at all

    Worst case scenario I will buy a new set and just give these 2 wheels to anybody out there who has a set like these cause it wouldnt hurt to have spares at all

    Have you tried a wheel repair company? Like Stockton wheel, or someone like that? Maybe they could help.

    I would watch out for places like Stockton.

    When I was still on the POR site (before I got booted! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif) I read a loonnngggg thread about Stockton Wheel and their services. Believe me, the majority of the replies were negative about them.

    So, I'm just warning you to watch your back and be careful with Stockton. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
